It's not a big event, but the two times that I've attended with my lovely sidekick, it has taken us a couple of hours of leisurely perusing most of the booths to finish. There's a fair number of non-vintagey vendors (home party candle/cosmetic sales, boxes of dollar store flotsam, etc), but enough old stuff to justify the $2 (with non-perishable donation) admission price.
...which then led to a shot of Mego Riddler figure for another friend (note the array of Mego shwag in this booth.)
My aforementioned partner is posing with his favorite from the bunch, a 1979 Mego Walking Twiki (want to see one in action?)
Ever wish you could emulate the sartorial stylings of Howard Wolowitz? Now you can! At 3 for 4 bucks! As Howard's mother (who obviously dresses him) would say, "Waht a Barhgain!"
(and yes, if you look carefully in the upper left corner of the shot, you can see Confederate Battle Flag bedsheets. No...really. Confederate. Battle. Flag. Bedsheets. Seriously.)
Antique creepy wall-mountable figurines of the clones emerging from their plant pods.
Before your brain goes right to the gutter, these were swank-looking mass-market doll house items. The sneaky photo (the vendor was glaring at me after the pod people shot, so I had to make it quick) that I tried to take of the actual furniture turned out very poorly, but about mid-way through this blog entry by Grimdeva, you can see several examples.
Hands down the oddest item of the day:
This is a 3-D sort of semi-taxidermy (that's real fur and leather) art assemblage portrait of a man who looks like he's died of exposure. I have no explanation for this whatsoever.
